Lodging & Meals


Anderson Ranch closely follows guidance released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the State of Colorado and the Pitkin County Health Department. In order to operate safely during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Anderson Ranch has made significant modifications to our housing and meal offerings for January 2022. We have established a Business Safety Plan with added layers of precaution that prioritizes the health and safety of our staff, students, faculty and guests while continuing to provide you with the Anderson Ranch experience that you know and enjoy.

Please be aware that health orders could be extended, amended or changed as needed to protect public health, which may impact Anderson Ranch’s Housing and Meals offerings and protocol. Click here for more details about registration and cancellation policies.

January 2022 Housing Options

Housing offerings are very limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis. The earlier you reserve housing, the better your chance of receiving your preferred option. Anderson Ranch is offering one single-occupancy housing option for January 2022. Shared housing options will not be available. For the safety of the Anderson Ranch community, Ranch-provided housing is only available to students who are attending workshops.

Rates below reflect six nights of accommodations as well as select meals. A sales and lodging tax of 12.8% will be added to the lodging portion at the time of registration. To guarantee your housing reservation, payment is due in full 60 days prior to the start date of your stay. Smoking and pets are not permitted at Anderson Ranch or in Anderson Ranch-provided housing.

There are 12 clean and modest bedrooms with private bathrooms, a lounge and communal laundry room. Each room is equipped with a mini refrigerator and microwave. Anderson Ranch housing is cleaned according to CDC guidelines. One set of linens and bath towels are provided. Routine cleaning of housing during the week is limited to common spaces and commonly touched surfaces. Students under the age of 18 are not permitted to stay in The Wyly House dormitory or in any Ranch-provided lodging. Students can secure transfer from the Aspen/Pitkin County Airport (ASE) to Anderson Ranch via the Roaring Fork Transportation Authority free bus service or by High Mountain Taxi Aspen.

The Ranch Café

The Ranch Café is now offering a creative inspired menu, coffees and teas. You’ll find the Café a peaceful and inspirational environment to relax with fellow community members and artists from all over the world.

The Café has comfortable indoor seating that is arranged in accordance with current health and safety guidelines. Meals may be ordered to go for individuals who would like to dine in other areas of campus.


Anderson Ranch takes food allergies very seriously and is not equipped to handle allergic reactions. If you have specific dietary needs or life-threatening allergies, booking your own accommodations off campus is your best option so you have access to a refrigerator and cooking facilities.
